Headed to the mall and then to the Doctor's office. Of course, I will be using my Capital One Venture card for all of the purchases today.
On the way, I notice a Yellow TT Booth street-exchange rate of 36.31 baht/USD.
Depending on how you choose to round decimals, I received a rate of 36.30 or 36.31 on my Capital One card, which is a great rate. Don't forget, in addition to received the street rate using my credit card, I also earned $2.61USD in reward points!
Using a credit card in Asia is a no-brainer. I get close to or beat the local exchange rate; don't need to carry cash; and earn either miles or reward points, depending on the card used. Don't let anyone tell you that using cards in Asia is a bad idea. But making sure you are using THE RIGHT CARDS is important!
